The Hutchinson Zoo volunteer program seeks to aid in accomplishing the mission of the zoo by providing qualified volunteers who will enhance the work of the paid staff. By working with the zoo staff, volunteers will have the opportunity to help meet the existing and changing needs of the zoo and help create and promote an understanding of the zoo throughout the community. The Hutchinson Zoo provides a variety of volunteer opportunities from running the cash register in the gift shop to preparing diets for the animals. If you enjoy animals, the Hutchinson Zoo is looking for you. This is a way to serve your community in a way that will affect generations to come.  For more information please contact Jessica at (620) 694-1990 or at jessica.wright@hutchgov.com

Interested in joining us? You can print and fill out the three forms and email them back to jessica.wright@hutchgov.com  or drop them off at the zoo. Blank copies of the forms can be picked up at the zoo gift shop as well.
